Appendix BStoplog Design Examples
The opening for the closure in this example is 47 ft, 4 in.wide by 4 ft, 4 in. high. The closure will be designedusing aluminum stoplogs (Example B.1.a.) and steel stop-logs (Example B.1.b.).Load Cases:The load cases given in EM 1110-2-2502 for inlandfloodwalls were taken into consideration. The only signif-icant case for design was found to be case I2.Case I2, Maximum Flood Loading. Stoplogs are in place,water on the unprotected side is at top of closure, wateron protected side is at or below the top of sill. Designstresses for aluminum shall not exceed 1.11 times theallowable stresses given in Aluminum Association, Inc.(1986). Design stresses for steel shall not exceed1.11 times the allowable stresses given in AISC (1989).The stoplogs are designed as simple beams spanning theopenings between posts and the openings between wallsand posts. Intermediate posts are designed as cantileverbeams fixed at the sill.
